URGENT – Lobby WMATA directors: end bag searches now


The WMATA Board of Directors will consider on Thursday morning whether or not to halt the random bag search program.

We’re pulling out all the stops to convince them the program is unconstitutional, ineffective, inconvenient and an insult to Metro riders.

We need your help!

It is vital that each board member gets our message loud and clear.  We have two ways to help you deliver your message:

Most effective way:
